This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
SIMple Pleasures requested an ornate gold frame to fit over the canvas paintings for her legacy family portraits; I thought it was a great idea. These are large, ornate, empty frames that are designed to be placed over the regular paintings your sims create on the easel. They are cloned from a vase, that being the only workable solution I could find with my limited modding knowledge (I did try), so they take up a ground slot. If you must place them over an object, like a table or dresser, then use the MoveObjects On code, it shouldn't hurt anything.

Polys: 576
Vertices: 288

It comes with three designs, each in a different color. (Bright gold, dark gold, and copper.) Each design has a silver recolor. You can find it under the wall hangings category.

Usage: I don't care what you do with these as long as you keep it on a free site and credit me. Retexture, recolor, edit the mesh (perhaps to turn it into a real painting), upload it to a lot, I don't care!

These are great! I actually created a wallpaper template to create wallpaper and place this frame over them. I did this because I needed specific paintings by specific artists for my Victorian Challenge entry.

Thank you for creating and sharing these. They are awesome and indeed a brilliant idea!

Creativity is giving the soul permission to leap beyond the boundaries of the ordinary!
